An Editing Checklist For Writers

Are you thinking about editing your own copy? 

At Writers Write, we give our students a Rewriting Checklist as part of our Writers Write course. This helps to correct any obvious errors the writer may have made.

There are four types of book editing - developmental, substantive, line, and proofreading. Unfortunately, we aren't all able to afford the services of professionals who could do this for us. 

The checklist below will help you correct common errors writers make in their first drafts.
